I do apologize JV. I did not recognize the seriousness of your issue when you first posted it. I very much agree domestic violence is not a joke.

Thank you for your apology, it means a lot to me. It was a really tough situation, and he even choked me and tried to kill me. He was a very scary man.

I have not tried it yet, but I just looked at it online. I might try the cloth ffm next. I have read mixed reviews, but they have a 30 day thing, so...

I have used the Sleepweaver Anew FFM as well as the Sleepweaver Élan nasal mask.
I had a problem with the Anew rubbing under my nose until it was sore. It also was difficult for me to tame the leaks with the Anew.
My two favorite masks are the Élan and the wisp. Both allow me to bury my face in my pillow when I sleep on my side or stomach, which is most of the time.
I did adjust my max pressure from 25 to 18. That made a huge difference with leaks and quality of sleep.

I second the Wisp mask! It has an xsmall mask which is really small. I use the small/med one and it fits perfectly and is comfortable. Only problem I have with it is it gets too humid in the mask and the seal becomes weak, making it leak. But that's an operator problem, not the masks fault.
